frustration: take it out on people you don’t know

“Blessing never ceases to follow obedience”. Actually, random high school facebook friend, it does. Unless you have some weird definition of “blessing” that i don’t want to hear about. Sometimes, obedience leads to crappiness and not much else. Is it ok if we all agree on that? Can we stop with the platitudes?

Who decided “platitude” was a good word? It always distracts me from my self-righteous indignation when i think of this word because it sounds like “platypus” and “attitude” stuck together, but obviously it has nothing to do with those.
Someone should tell God that he is seriously messing with my theodicy right now, because he doesn’t appear to be listening to me.
[ok, God, that was a potshot, and you’re not even a person i don’t know… but, well, i’m whining, and there’s a long tradition of that in the Bible, so there. THERE.
maybe you should come in a thundercloud and yell at me like you did to Job. i would definitely deserve that.
one time my new testament teacher declared that Jesus should have just magically made the widow of Nain happier instead of actually raising her son from the dead. if you’re not going to fix things, you could just make everyone magically happy.
oh, that’s one of the stupidest things you’ve ever heard? i thought so too.]
